About So To Speak: 11,000 Expressions That'll Knock Your

Product Description Engage with everyday expressions in a completely different (and fun!) way, with this entertaining and interactive book of common phrases that can turn a humdrum gathering into a raucous game night. We use expressions and idioms all the time. When you feel sick, you’re “under the weather.” When you feel great, you’re “on top of the world.” But whether you’re a “smart cookie” or a tough one, you—and almost everyone you know—have a veritable smorgasbord of expressions stored deep in your brain. So to Speak: 11,000 Expressions That’ll Knock Your Socks Off is the largest collection of its kind. Thoughtfully divided into sixty-seven categories—from Animals to Food & Cooking, from Love to Politics, this reference guide may have more in common with an activity book! Don’t look for definitions and etymologies, because the book is just the beginning. So to Speak is the launchpad for your lifelong journey to explore the universe of expressions. In fact, it’s designed to get readers off the page—and engaging with each other through word games and puzzles. So to Speak spurs discussion, debate, and play, while encouraging the art of listening and celebrating the joy of words. Authors Shirley and Harold Kobliner spent more than half a century nurturing and teaching children. So to Speak is a reflection of their deeply held belief that regardless of a person’s age, the most impactful learning happens when you’re having fun. Whether it’s grandparents teaching their favorite expressions to their grandkids, teens helping adults with the latest lingo or slang, or millennials indulging in their love of wordplay and games, this is the perfect book for any lover of language. Review “A testament to a life filled with love of family and of language. You’ll wonder at the vast creativity embedded in our language and at the dedication of the couple who pulled it all together.” —Mignon Fogarty, New York Times bestselling author of Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing “This is a fun and playful compendium of sayings and idioms for fans of words, and for people like me who always get them wrong!” —Michelle Rial, author of Am I Overthinking This?: Over-Answering Life’s Questions in 101 Charts “So to Speak is an embarrassment of riches: thousands of expressions sorted into logical categories that wind up juxtaposing familiar phrases so that they glimmer with a new sheen. The result is an invitation to cavort with some of the English language’s most eccentric characters, which one can do simply by browsing or by playing the games outlined in the book. Either way—any way—it’s a very good time.”  —Emily Brewster, senior editor and lexicographer at Merriam-Webster "Shirley and Harold Kobliner's astonishing collection provides readers of all stripes with joyful appreciation of 11,000 expressions, phrases, and sayings that teem our daily speech and writing. If you do not find this book entertaining and enlightening, I'll eat my hat, crow, humble pie, and dirt. If you do not see this book as learning dressed up to have fun, I'll fall on my sword, cry in my beer, and be down in the mouth and the dumps. If the grand gallery of sprightly illustrations of expressions in action doesn't knock your socks off and leave you pleased as Punch and tickled pink, I'll be bug-eyed, bowled over, and caught off base with my pants down." —Richard Lederer, author of National Bestseller Crazy English “ So to Speak showcases a cascade of expressions sure to press your memory buttons. Every page triggers a ‘remember when?’ or ‘oh yeah!’ or a ‘ha!’ The variety and creativity of the English language is on display, spanning eras, generations, pastimes, professions, geographies, and attitudes. It’s a deep collection of the new, the old, the facetious, the funny, and the absurd. A browser’s delight.” —Grant Barrett, co-host of public radio’s A Way with Words “One of the greatest gifts we give to our children and friends is to fill our la
